I knew nothing of it.

But now I'm guessing replacement candidates are being groomed from SJAFB? Yesterday, F-15's were on maneuvers here like NEVER before. They were like flies over a hot steaming pile.

Did any Americans STOP waving their US Flags on 09/11/01, because their arms were tired from waving it on 09/10/01?

I don't know whether to say great flying, or great shooting!

“We have thousands of airmen across our Air Force serving our country, and not one of them is perfect,” O’Malley said. “

That's an interesting comment. In my day, 1973-99, you could really screw up, as long as you didn't hurt anyone or bend metal, and still would probably professionally survive that screw up. A lot of folks are tight lipped but my curiosity is piqued. 13 days in command and she is out!

First Q is whether or not she was actually [best] qualified as a team leader, or qualified as a politically correct pilot.

Sometimes truth isn't popular to publicly discuss tho'...

That is such an old school complaint. We've had women pilots for 3 decades in the military now and they've proven that neither testosterone nor political correctness are needed to be a good pilot. No one gets to be part of a demonstration team unless they the have the "right stuff".

That is unless you have information to the contrary. Or, like me, is your curmudgeon"ness" showing?
